About At Home In Hollywood with Lisa Johnson Mandell

Lisa Johnson Mandell

At Home In Hollywood with Lisa Johnson Mandell is not your typical Hollywood gossip site.

This a site for people who enjoy great entertainment, but are overwhelmed by the countless options available and just don’t have time to see everything. It’s for those who want to know what’s worth their precious time and money.

It’s also for people who love great architecture and design, and want to see the unique, glamorous, and sometimes overwhelming ways that people live on this planet. Even I, who regularly visit some of the world’s most interesting homes, am often floored by people’s priorities.

My years of experience doing features, reviews and appearances on outlets including NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox, CNN, PBS, HGTV, the BBC and myriad other networks, as well as in publications like The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Times of London, The Los Angeles Times, and Realtor.com has given me unique access to preview screenings, premieres, showings, events, parties and awards ceremonies.

My three bestselling books, published by St. Martin’s Press, Simon and Schuster and Hachette, give me additional credence. They include “How to Snare a Millionaire,” “Become Your Own Matchmaker,” and “Career Comeback — Repackage Yourself to Get the Job You Want.”

I’ve been a film critic, food critic, TV critic, book critic, culture critic and a real estate/design critic. I don’t like to think of myself as overly critical, but I do like to help my readers discern what’s worth watching and what’s not.

As a very active member of the Critics Choice Association (CCA), I vote for and attend the Critics Choice Awards each year.

Basically, I see everything so you don’t have to, and I try to help you make the most out of your invaluable time and money spent on digital recreation.

My family has lived in the Los Angeles area for five generations, and we’ve been intimately involved with the land, and the entertainment industry that sprang from it. Allow me to pull the curtain back on all the insider secrets, and give you a good laugh at the same time.
